I recently purged some of my large scale trains (had too many) but here is a partial list:

LGB 2085D - Hanomag Mallet - one of LGB's biggest steam engines.
LGB 2070D - Zillertalbahn steam engine with 3 Zillertal passenger coaches
LGB 2043 - RhB GE 4/4 with 2 passenger coaches and baggage car
Frank S Live Steam - currently in pieces :eek:

I can't remember the names of the other ones!

LGB 02285 - Deutsche Reichsbahn 996001

saved it 10 years ago..not been running since 1996 i guess
i have no other info on this loco..hmmmm :confused:
That's because the model number is wrong. It's either a 2080D or 2080S with sound. The later models may have a different model number, but all pre-93 are four digits plus a lettered designation for smoke, sound or some other feature.

I have one myself, a 2080D, and a 2180S which has the green paint scheme of the Harzquerbahn narrow gauge railway in Germany. I'll get some pics up of the green one, I think the black one is in storage.

D = Dampflokomotiven = Steam Locomotive in German.

As promised:







Some more stuff I had lying around:

A very prototypical RhB freight train led by the monster Ge 6/6 Krokodil. The red car on the end is a Rhatische Bahn postal / baggage car.



Just to illustrate G scale vs HO scale, in case:



sorry for the crappy pic quality, I think I rushed a little.

I love the brown Stainz - don't really see those too often!
You're the second one who's pointed that out. Now that I think of it, I don't recall seeing one before myself. I paid the princely sum of $25 for the whole smack including a 6' x 10' oval of track.

If it looks like this then it's as old as 1969/70 which is quite a find.

That would be the set. The original track is long gone, a much tighter radius like your set. The track I have is in LGB boxes and is a much wider radius.

The steam tractor I bought 3 years ago and never had the nerve to fire it up. It is a Mamod TE1a from about 1970-71 we figure, a sweet running engine that was apparently a presentation piece of some sort as it came with a fitted wood base that at one time had an engraved plate on it.

Here is my G scale train. This was about 2 years ago, it's now mounted on the ceiling and goes around my son's room. I started him on trains at around 12 months.

It's a crappy picture from my iphone, but you get the picture. The grid is from aristocraft trains, with peco s hook hangers. It works really well, but being fully suspended, sudden stops of the train cause the entire thing to sway.

Other than that it works perfectly. We have brackets to wall mount as well, but I need to position it in a way that wouldn't take it under the smoke detector. The grid is actually large enough to run two trains, but I figured 1 was enough.

Oh, and I was quite happy to get PRR coaches, since I live on a branch of the old PRR line. I actually took an excursion tour this past fall that used two restored Reading engines and NJ Metro cars that went right past my house.
